Amazon's "Top Selling Videos"
Here's a mystery: Amazon has a page showing their top selling VHS videos. It is "updated hourly." Before you look at what the top sellers are, take a guess. I doubt that anyone would think that the 1994 Richard Simmons "Sweating to the Oldies"
video would be listed as No. 1 -- particularly in view of the fact that it is described as being "unavailable."
The others in the top 10 are also interesting: #3 is the 1945 black and white "A Tree Grows in Brooklyn"
. Would you guess that #7 is "Fatso
", a 1993 comedy starring Dom DeLuise?
I may be wrong but I suspect that Amazon's ratings are not accurate. Now I wonder about their book ratings . . .
